High A Dish: Triunfel Still Hot; McAllister Tosses Gem

California League

Prospect Of The Day

High Desert (Mariners) shortstop Carlos Triunfel is on an absolute tear. After going over 550 career at-bats without a home run, he’s hit seven in his last 156. Yesterday he went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, a home run and stolen base. It was his 24th swiped bag in 31 attempts.

Kinston (Indians) catcher Carlos Santana had his first big day since coming over in the Casey Blake deal. He was 2-for-5 with a triple and two runs scored against Salem (Astros).

Prospect Nuggets

Frederick (Orioles) righthander Brandon Erbe should be owed dinner or something from his teammates. He tossed a six-inning gem, allowing just one earned run on four hits while striking out eight and walking two. But he dropped to 8-10 after his offense could muster only one run after his exit and the bullpen surrendered eight in the eighth inning.
